Welcome, and First Post instructions

Hello, students, and welcome to our blog. 

 Let’s work today to get everyone on the blog, and writing.
Our address is
The first thing you must do is get a Gmail account.  Then, using that Gmail address, please write to me at and I will invite you to the blog.   You must accept the invite and follow the steps in order to use the blog.  Let’s do this in class.

Once you are a member, you will see your Gmail address appear in the upper right hand corner, and only then can you post to the blog.

--To do a New Post, you must again find that link in the upper right hand corner.  Click New Post and a window will appear to let you compose.

Please title all your writings, and use a username that is either your name or nickname so we know who is writing.  Only class members will be on this blog.

GOAL: For your first post, write one paragraph where you introduce yourself and some things about you.

In your next paragraph or paragraphs, write a response to one of the two essays you read for today.   What struck you the most and seemed important?  What did you learn or think about in a new way, if anything?  Begin your response with a direct quote and favorite passage taken from your active reading.

 Good luck, have fun, share your ideas, and just let me know when you need help!

All best,

Mike Lohre
